Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Remarkably nimble, unquestionably supple, and terrifically luscious, the ’97 Alzero is a masterpiece from the Master of the Veneto, Giuseppe Quintarelli. This wine is kaleidoscopic, revealing myriad layers of flavors: Christmas cake, jammy red and blue fruits, mocha, graphite, and earth reveal themselves in this wine’s dizzying, complex palate. As rich as it is, this wine is nonetheless fresh and vibrant; never heavy and always shifting, this Alzero is a wonder that needs to be experienced. Alzero is a massive--and massively delicious--wine. Quintarelli makes it only in the very best years, solely from fruit derived from old vines. As in the estate’s Amarone, Quintarelli treats Alzero’s grapes with the appassimento technique, drying the grapes in single layers upon straw or plastic mats for 60 to 100 days to concentrate and intensify the flavor; it’s also the sole Quintarelli wine that’s aged in barriques.
